Review and Commentary

Abstract: The mons pubis may become involved in dermatologic conditions or gynecologic lesions affecting the vulva. There are also unusual lesions that have been reported arising from the mons specifically. A familiarity with these lesions will be helpful if a patient with a lesion of the mons is encountered.

Lesions of the mons pubis are reviewed.
